Recognition Policy for Presenters & Volunteers

The Recognition Policy for Presenters & Volunteers is designed to acknowledge and show appreciation for contributions to the conference. The policy provides discounts on early registration fees as summarized in the table below. The discounts are applied:  

  • To the registration category selected by the individual contributor or volunteer.  
  • To the early registration fees regardless of when registration is completed.  

For example, if you are a member of the Technical Papers Committee, your registration fee will be half of the early-registration fee for a member or non-member of ACM or ACM SIGGRAPH. If you are a student, you must be a student member of ACM or ACM SIGGRAPH to be eligible for a discounted fee. Memberships are verified during the registration process.

Each contributor gets the highest discount available without aggregating discounts for multiple presentations. Discounts are ONLY transferable to an individual who is a co-contributor or co-presenter of the work and recognized as such on the SIGGRAPH 2016 web site.

If a contributor's employer is willing to pay for registration, SIGGRAPH encourages the contributor to waive the recognition discount. Any overall savings goes to enhance the overall attendee experience at the conference.

Implementation Details

Contributors and volunteers will receive a single-use code for appropriate reduction of the early-registration fee. Discount codes and instructions for online registration will be sent via email in May.
